''Talia'' 2014
KooKoo is honored to present the artist Shahar Sivan, an amazing Haifa artist in his multicolor, an excellent painter and a unique sculptor, a creator of wood-cut works (woodcutting) in the German tradition and a painter of abstract paintings full of strong colors.
Shahar is very active in the Haifa art scene - partner and founder of "Haneveem work room", Haifa School of Art, and co-founder of "The Second Wing", Haifa Art Gallery. KooKoo brings you from his works for the first time, carefully selected works from the artist's studio and a smart investment

Oil on wood
29/27 cm

Shahar Sivan works like a crazy butcher, aggressively slicing his material, revealing its raw condition, studying its structure and reducing it to its basic construction. His works look like an accumulation of rough scars, evidence of a forceful, even violent approach to the material.
His figures lack specification, their facial features and body shapes are general and
impersonal. A review of Sivan's work in different media reveals that on the technical level, this stylistic approach stems from a drawing based study in line. However the transition to wood cutting (in two and three dimensions) gives the impression there's something more to it. The structural lines of the figure seem to charge in greater emotional intensity, since the material calls for greater physical pressure.
It may be said that in the combination of abstract figurativeness (which doesn't seek to
reliably portray the figure) and expressive style, the figure becomes insignificant, supposedly
giving the artist an excuse to express his own temperament. That his work may be
interpreted as traces of emotional outbursts in the manner of Jackson Pollock and Action Art.
It is evident that Sivan's demeanor comes through vividly in his works; however the junction
in which he departs from Pollock, is the humanistic outlook through which he perceives the
world. His outlook believes in a hierarchical structure of the art work, in its logical foundation
and in a figurative anchor for the viewer's identification.
